Indeed. I have a bug in the Intel video driver, tickled by running the
foobillard game. The only solution is to reboot. I've reported it
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=510948) and someone else
also reported a similar one
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=509598) but I've seen
absolutely no feedback on either of these.

Is no-one else running OpenGl apps under F11? Should I report this bug
upstream?
